Episode 35 – Where We Triumph Over Fail

This is take two of this episode! Laura reviews Melissa Leapman’s colorwork books, Leslie shows off her finished Shipwreck & Handspun, and our Favorite Things segment takes on a life of its own. Again.

Laura is knitting on…

Mystery Pi shawl (designed by Wendy) out of Blackberry Ridge Lace Silk Blend in the Samarkand Blue.

Noro Shawl: Based on the Silk Kerchief pattern (no longer available, but I’ll try to recreate it to the best of my ability in my pattern notes) and out of Noro Kureyon Sock in S188 and S220.

Miss Babs in Rocket Ship (Thanks Wendy).  Socks are the Toe-up with gusset.

Diamond Gansey Socks out of DkKnits technicolor Dream Toes in Cracker of Nuts (she’s no longer on etsy, sad face)

BTW: I’m so tired, I’m loopy on Sonic food and Cherry Limeaide in this episode.

Leslie is knitting on…

A Pogona out of Tempted Yarn in the “That’s What She Said” colorway.

Awesome, very cool, no snag stitchmarkers at Beagindesigns

Leslie is done with…

Leslie knit a square out of Special Snowflakes Yarn Club in “Teal Deer”

Shipwreck Shawl. And the world rejoiced.  Yay!

Stripy Sock out of Perfect Day Yarns

Laura is done with…

FOP square (it’s a secret and you can’t see it).

Moody Kerchief pattern out of Malabrigo Worsted in Whale Road and Noro Iroha. You can find my notes here.  I heart this shawl and have already started another.

About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.
